    Joel was awesome. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. However, the tour did go overtime which was mostly fine, but everyone was exhausted and kept sitting down and he had to pause a couple times to regather people, so I would recommend sticking to the time a little better. Additionally, the booking states that the tour will end where is begins so we parked around the corner from the meeting spot, but he decided while on the tour that he was actually not going to do that and stopped the tour at the end very far away. We would have had to walk the 2.5 hours back to our car so we had to spend an extra $50 on a bike taxi back to our car so that was frustrating. Otherwise we really enjoyed the tour.

    Perfect!

    For someone like me who likes to get lost in big parks and doesn't feel like wandering around forever, the guided walking tour is perfect! The lady who showed us around the park was very nice and funny. She showed us all the sights and told us nice stories along the way. A great walk with nice conversations!
